One donor's story: Sherill Joan (Agustin) Closner

  • Minneapolis
  • Organ , Tissue , Eyes
  • Deceased Donor: 2012

Sherill (Sherry) was a sweet, happy person – always ready to give and receive a hug.  She loved to sing, and before her Parkinsons made it impossible – she also loved to dance.  Sherry also like to go fishing – our oldest brother used to take her and she really enjoyed it.  When our mother was alive, she and Sherry traveled a bit – most notably to Hawaii – they had a great time.  The women of the family honor Sherry’s memory when our toenails are painted pink – Sherry like to have manicures/pedicures and usually chose some shade of pink for the polish.
There is not likely another person with as sweet a disposition as Sherry!

Music, dance, family were most important to Sherry.

Sherry’s daughter passed away in 2010 and she was a donor.  Because there was that precedence set, we knew this is what she would have wanted.  Prior to her daughter’s death there was no other planning for donation.
